Urban Stormwater Management- Potential and Challenges

October 05, 2023

Floods are quite common in South Asia, with India being the second-worst flood-affected country in the world. Floods do not just occur due to overflowing rivers, they are also caused by the uninformed manner in which cities are interfering with the natural water cycle.

The study is aimed at understanding the potential and challenges of current practices of stormwater management and thereby suggesting approaches which focus on lowering the hydrological impact of urbanization in Indian cities.

The first part of the report focuses on the guiding research question—What are the existing planning approaches and infrastructural provisions for stormwater management in Indian cities?

The second part of the report suggests approaches as per the existing spatial urban characteristics. The planning approach recommended makes use of stormwater as a resource rather than a liability.
